This study has analysed fourteen case studies. It shows the possible strategy combinations for data workflows and governance to deliver general trends at the European scale. We also find that coordination at the pan-European level and an effective guidance provision are essential, along with the networking of strong national coordination centres ensuring national ownership.
This report provides a starting point for discussions on strategies for the development of a European biodiversity monitoring coordination. To be continued!
